Question about HP LaserJet 3050 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Lots of useless reports printed

Hi! I have an HP 3050 laserjet fax and out of a sudden it started to simulate an incoming call and then it prints out a "fax call report" with the result "no fax detected". This happens every 5 minutes, 24/7 and it costs me a lot of paper. How can I stop this? Many thanks! Bogdan

You should get the Number of the Companies Fax Number and complain to your Telephone Provider, that your constantly receiving fax messages from a Company that's obviously dialing the wrong number.
The fact that they're not getting any replies from you surely should lead them to realize that they are dialing a wrong number.
Then perhaps the Telecoms Company can put a Block on the Number from calling you again.

Worth a Try :-).

Hp laserjet 3050 fax report


The error 244 results from a fax machine communicating and trying to 'Poll" your fax. (receive information you have loaded into the fax memory for all to receive) The error comes in when your fax has no information or is not set up to be polled.

Look in your menu for the "ECM" setting on the printer menu. If this error is getting persistent change the ECM setting to the opposite of what it is set now. More than likely your fax will say ECM=On, change to off.

If you have problems locating where the ECM section is, print a "settings report" or "printer menu".

Hope that helps you.

Replacing Print Cartridge


Turns out there was an easy solution. I filed a support case and had an answer in half a day:

"Often this issue is caused by a sensor. â Therefore the first thing we should do is try to trigger the sensor.
1 Turn off the HP LaserJet 3050
2 Remove the toner cartridge from the HP LaserJet 3050
3 Remove all of the paper in the paper tray
4 Check the entire paper path for any obstructions
5 Reseat the toner cartridge and paper
6 Power on the HP LaserJet 3050

If the issue is still not resolved we will need to try some resets on the HP LaserJet 3050.
1. The first reset we can try is a soft reset, it is done by pressing the MENU key then holding *# together. â This will bring you into a Developers Menu. â Scroll through the options until you find reinit FFS and then press the ENTER key.
2. If this reset doesn't clear the issue we can try a harder reset. â We can do this by pressing MENU, scrolling over to SERVICE, pressing ENTER, scrolling over to RESTORE DEFAULTS and pressing ENTER to restore the defaults and ENTER to confirm.

WARNING: Restoring the defaults will clear your fax settings, phonebook numbers and headers so you may want to print a phonebook report and Config Report first. â We can do this by accessing the Reports menu.

3. If these two resets do not help there is a third reset we can try.This reset will completely put the HP LaserJet 3050 back to factory defaults.WARNING: Before doing this reset we will need to disconnect the power cord, the phone cable, and the USB cable from the back of the HP LaserJet 3050.We can do this reset by unplugging the power cord from the back of the HP LaserJet 3050 then holding down the MENU/ENTER key and * symbol at the same time,then powering the HP LaserJet 3050 back on with the keys compressed.We will release the keys as soon as PERMANENT STORAGE INIT appears on the display screen."

I tried all the steps in sequence; it took #3 to fix it. Fortunately I didn't have a big fax address book or custom settings, so a factory defaults reset didn't cause any extra problems. It retained the time and date, and now it works fine.
